Gijnlim is a 100% male hybrid and highly suitable for production of white and green asparagus in a temperate climate. The variety is an exceptionally early grower and combines this trait with very high productivity. Gijnlim is ideal for forced cultivation conditions. Due to its outstanding quality, the variety is particularly highly appreciated by farm or direct sales.
 
Characteristics
 
• For white and green asparagus production
• The standard variety for early white asparagus
• The standard variety for green asparagus
• Extremely high yield potential
• Extremely suitable for forced production
• Strong on quality
 
Cultivation
Gijnlim is ideally suited for fertile sandy and clay soils. The more fertile the soil is, the longer in the season the spear thickness remains good. Extensive practical experience has shown that the best results for white asparagus production can be achieved with a planting density of 3 – 3.5 plants per linear metre. This plant density can be increased by approximately 30% if the asparagus is harvested green. Higher planting densities give a higher yield, but can lead to an accelerated decrease in spear thickness. Gijnlim appreciates irrigation if drought occurs while the foliage is developing. Thanks to its natural earliness, Gijnlim is ideally suited to extra forcing techniques, such as anti-condensation covers, mini tunnels and plastic mulch.
 
Product
Gijnlim has a very high production potential and exceptional quality. The main spear size is 16 - 24 mm. Gijnlim has an excellent tip closure, is straight, smooth and has high resistance to rust and breaking. Good post harvest handling will prevent pink discolouration.
 
The plant
Gijnlim has abundant foliage, but has low susceptibility to lodging. If correct measures are taken to control disease, the foliage remains sufficiently green and strong till autumn.
